Character Interview + ARC GIVEAWAY!

The Best Kind of MagicI absolutely ADORED The Best Kind of Magic by Crystal Cestari, and I adored the main character from the novel, Amber, even more!

Amber, the awesome-sauce girl that she is, agreed to stop by the blog and answer a few questions! Enjoy! 

Hey Amber! Thank you so much for stopping by! I know you're a busy gal, so let's get right to it! 
What's your favorite thing about working at Windy City Magic?
Amber: Tourists always seem surprised that we sell actual magic. I once warned a suburbanite not to use more than a drop of our hair-growing tonic on his bald spot, but apparently he didn't believe me, and came back a week later with a Rapunzel-style mullet. He was really mad and I couldn't stop laughing. Ah, memories. 
If you were turned into a dessert, what would you be and why?
Amber: Oh man, the most difficult question of all time! Wow. While I'd like to say I'd be something fluffy and light like a donut or angel food cake, let's be real; that's not me. No, I'm something complicated and semi-annoying to make, like a creme brulee: if you don't handle me right, I'll curdle. Also, I definitely have a thick outer shell. 
I know you and your mom don't always see eye to eye, but, what is one thing you admire most about her? 
Amber: What impresses me most is her restraint. If I were a witch, I would abuse that power to no end. Feeling like a snack, but don't want to get off the couch? I'd float the fridge over my way. Tired of teachers yapping about nothing? Boom, silencing spell. (it's probably for the best that I'm not a witch)
Do you have any hidden talents? (Besides the obvious!) 
Amber: If being picked last for any sort of sport or school project counts, then yes.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?
Amber: My best friend, Amani, to keep me sane.
A blanket, to keep me from waking up with sand in my eyes and other uncomfortable places. 

A portal charm from my mom's secret supply chest, to get out of there. Wait, is that cheating? 

Early bird or night owl? 
Night owl for sure... are there people who are early birds? Sounds terrible. 

Celebrity crush?
I don't really know a lot of celebrities... does Mary Berry count?

Teleportation or Telekinesis?
Since I already spend a lot of time invading people's brain space without them knowing, I'm gonna go with teleportation on this one. It would be pretty sweet to pop in and out of bakeries around the world at a moment's notice--pun intended!
